CBT &
            COUNSELLING







 

I will use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to help support you in working through your difficulties in a safe environment where you will be listened to empathetically. I very much so embrace the approach of us working together, side-by-side. I specialise in working with Anxiety (including Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Social Anxiety, Health Anxiety . Also, panic attacks & OCD).

CBT is an evidence-based talking therapy which looks at how  thoughts impact feelings and behaviours. By making small changes in how we think and behave, we can create meaningful change in our everyday lives.  


In addition to listening to you carefully and helping you gain insight into your difficulties, I will be able to introduce you to some helpful tools and useful techniques which you can use out-with our sessions to help minimise your symptoms. I will also provide psychoeducation to help you to understand your experiences and to provide a rationale behind why  specific coping strategies are helpful or indeed, unhelpful.

 

Everyone's story is different and so I will take time to hear how it is for you. This will allow us to create a helpful treatment plan which will best meet your needs. Part of the process of our work together, will involve me supporting you in exploring where unhelpful beliefs have originated and also, in providing psychoeducation around your symptoms to allow you to understand what is going on for you. Often, when we can understand why our body & mind works the way it does, it can help reduce the fear attached to what we are experiencing. 

SPECIAL AREAS OF FOCUS:

I specialise in working with Anxiety Disorders, including Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Illness Anxiety (Health Anxiety) & Social Anxiety. I also work with OCD and Panic. For many experiencing the impact of anxiety, low self-esteem and low mood may accompany anxiety. I can help support you in these areas, also.
